Emails: How to Set Up Apple, Outlook & Gmail Account

This section explains how to connect your email accounts to various mail client applications for sending and receiving emails. Contact support regarding email hosting, DNS, and setting up your email if you’re having trouble connecting or your email application isn’t listed.
Remember: Regardless of your email client, configure it to delete emails from the server after they’re fetched to avoid exceeding your inbox’s 100MB storage limit. Check the configuration guides for specific instructions on how to do this for your email client.


To send and receive emails in Gmail, open Gmail in your browser and click the settings (gear) icon in the top right of the screen.

Click the Accounts and Imports tab and under the Check mail from other accounts option, click the Add a mail account link.

In the “Add a mail account” window, enter the email address and click next.

You will then be asked to enter information about your other email address. Make sure to check the Treat as an alias box so that messages received from your A-Z+ email account will appear in your Gmail inbox. Click Next Step when this is done.

Windows Mail
Windows Mail does not have the option to remove email from the server after you’ve downloaded or synced it to your client. This means that an email will cease functioning once your 100Mb limit for the connected email account is reached. This guide is provided as a configuration example for your convenience, but we do not recommend this client.
To send and receive emails from your email account in Windows Mail, first open the Mail app in Windows 10. In the application settings, click Manage accounts and Add account.

From the list of account types, click Advanced setup. On the next screen, select Internet email.

Enter the account information associated with your email address:
  • Email address
  • User name – Your email address.
  • Password
  • Account name
  • Incoming email server –
  • Account type – POP3.
  • Outgoing email server –

Click Sign in to finish adding your account. Once finished, you should be able to send and receive emails from Windows Mail using the connected to your email address.
